Eight Key West High School (KWHS) teachers have been awarded a total of $40,000 through the distinguished “David Wolkowsky 2017 Teachers of Merit Awards.” Key West philanthropist and businessman David Wolkowsky gives the awards annually to teachers who go the extra mile in their passion for teaching and dedication to students.

The eight 2017 Teachers of Merit, who each received $5,000, are:

  • Liana Blanco (English/ELL)
  • Sarah Smith (Media Specialist/Reading)
  • Mary Swan (Reading/ESE)
  • Sarah Sheer (Spanish/Student Activities Director)
  • Valerie Palay (French/Life Skills)
  • Shannon Perkins (Art/Experiential Learning)
  • Nora Laubenstein (Social Studies/AVID)
  • Tara Whitehead (Science/Teacher Professional Development Coordinator)

CFFK administers the awards. “The Community Foundation is pleased to work with Mr. Wolkowsky, who is focusing his generous philanthropy on educators,” said Dianna Sutton, President and CEO of the CFFK. “His gift supports teachers who give freely of their time, energy and expertise to encourage and counsel students.”

The David Wolkowsky Teachers of Merit Awards have been given since 2001. Recipients are selected by the school administration, based on the teachers’ contributions in and out of the classroom.
